At that time (and now) I just can't make it weekly....maybe once or twice a month but not weekly to meetings. Chamber of commerce sounds like a better direction.
That's the same reason I didn't join my local group..in the middle of the mowing season I cannot attend meetings every week, also as a member you are given "research projects" that you have to prepare for a presentation to the group....No Thanks...my schedule is full enough already.
